Somewhere in France
Aug. 13/18
Dear Katie:-
Received your letter and parcel O.K. Hope you will not think I am complaining. But please don't send me those trench candles they are simply useless. Also candy and chocolate I don't care for. Please send cigarettes, cake, chewing gum, and a tin of peanut butter, and that will please me as much as a fancy parcel. I don't feel right for writing just now. I have just come through another german hunt. Quite a few of my old pals are either wounded or other wise. And I feel as if my turn to follow some of them is pretty near. Well dear girl Cyril will be in France again before long. Well Katie this letter leaves me in the best of health hoping it reaches you the same.
Ever your loving brother
Fred B
